At the center of the Côte de Nuits, between Chambolle-Musigny and Vosne-Romanée, right above the Clos-de-Vougeot, we find the Échezeaux. One of the most famous Grand Cru vineyard in Burgundy. Created by the Cistercian monks, 9 centuries ago, its name comes from the French word "échezeau", which is used to describe a grouping of houses, or a small village. The Échezeaux is a tad bigger than its Grands-Échezeaux counterpart, but both have very diverse climates.
The Échezeaux AOC is a Grand Cru produced near the village of Flagey-Échezeaux, its vineyard being located in the much larger Vosne-Romanée vineyard (Échezeaux actually belongs to the 8 Grands Crus appellations of Vosne-Romanée). It's a 37 hectares area, encompassing 11 localities that are so different in their soil quality that their wines display quite a huge range of expressions. The annual production of red wines made from Pinot Noir grapes is about 200 hectoliters.
